    I should have mentioned that I did manually set the clock to the correct
    time, but it was somehow automatically set back to the wrong time.

    I'm in Boise, ID (MST). My clock is displaying the wrong time (it displays
    an hour ahead of the correct time).

    I went to Windows Update and tried to run the DST update. I get this error

    Title: KB931836 Setup Error
    Message: Update cannot be installed as a newer or same timezone update has
    already been installed on the system

    I tried restarting my machine, hoping that perhaps the update had been
    installed but not yet applied. No help.

    In my Date and Time Properties I do *not* have a tab for setting time from a
    time server.

    Thanks for any guidance you can give on fixing this problem.

  3. Do *not* change the machine's time manually.
    Start -> Run -> cmd -> time

    Hello--I'm also having "dynamic, ongoing" reverting of the internal clock in
    my Windows 2000, and manual re-setting or setting of time zone doesn't stop
    it. I don't know what your last line means--is that a solution to this
    problem? I may need more explanation of how what to do in DOS.

    I had one 2003 server that did this to me. Removing the update and trying to
    reinstall did not work. It told me I was already updated. So I found TZEDIT
    on microsoft's website and I followed their instructions and created a new
    Eastern Time Zone for myself. To get it to take, I copied the current Eastern
    Time Zone name but left off Canada so I could see the difference. Then I set
    the correct dates for the new standards and I applied it. It appears to be
    holding. Previously I was restarting the time service and it would reset.
    After creating this new zone and restarting the service, it is still correct
    after a time synch.

    Not perfect but it will do as I am doing away with this server for a new one

    Good luck!

    You should also have mentioned whether you do any dual booting with
    other NTx OS... ; )

    The best solution is a time server.
